Why might this training be interesting for you?
Therapy and counseling with couples poses some challenges, especially for therapists without special training in couples therapy. This one-year training gives opportunity to learn new skills from experienced practitioners and trainers from a systemic perspective. You will continuously practice and further refine what you have already learned throughout the course.
In this training program the relevant theoretical basics as well as the necessary methodological knowledge is taught, with a focus on their practical application. A further focus is on the systemic-constructivist stance of the therapist and on the development of each participant’s individual therapeutic style. In this context, the self-reflection module serves as an extension of one's own cognitive and behavioral patterns as a therapist.
